The Vaal Dam, Floods and Cuckoos

Thank you so much to everyone who visited and left such lovely comments about my studio, I am very happy with this new space and it is lovely to have one room where all my things can fit so nicely:) Today we went on a short road trip to see the Vaal Dam. It is 105% full and is overflowing. All the residents in the surrounding areas have been safely evacuated approx 600 people. The water gushing out of the flood gates was amazing, so powerful and terrifying at the same time.

 A view from the bridge we were standing on.

We did manage to stop in at a quaint thrift shop and I saw this gravy boat, I just loved it AND I really need a gravy boat. I love that it has a base plate to catch the gravy that runs down the side, instead of the table cloth…

I finished spinning that rainbow superwash today and have started with another…

I have been hearing a strange bird call in our garden over the past week, today we discovered it was a Cuckoo…

I am so excited about this shot, it isn’t the greatest shot, I know, I think I was so over the moon when I saw what was happening that I couldn’t keep the camera still! This Robin on the right is feeding this large Cuckoo on the left. I have always heard how Cuckoos lay their eggs in other birds nests, in this case the Robin’s nest and are raised by birds other than their own mothers. To experience this today was an amazing gift from nature! In this photo above, the Robin had just fed the Cuckoo:)
